Toward A Criterion Theory: A Review and Analysis of Research and Opinion.
Ronan, William W.; Prien, Erich P.
Literature dealing with the development and utilization of work performance criteria is reviewed in terms of (1) the reliability of job performance as a criteria, (2) the reliability of job performance observation as a criteria, (3) the dimensionality of job performance, and (4) extra-individual conditions which modify job performance. From the review, theorems and corollaries are formulated, testable hypotheses are derived, and 15 areas in which further research would be useful are suggested. It is concluded that variation in job performance is a result of a wide range of causal influences and that its measurement is nebulous. A 226-item bibliography is included. (HW)
